Of all the forms of artistic expression, dance is the one most capable of levelling obstacles to communication, including geographical and language barriers.
The Madrid International Dance Festival —Madrid en Danza— will be returning to the our stages in December of 2019, turning the Region of Madrid into the world’s dance capital once again this year. This event will be running for the 34th time, with a programme of over twenty Spanish and international shows at leading venues like the Teatros del Canal or the Sala Cuarta Pared.
For the fifth consecutive year, the choreographer and dancer Aída Gómez will be the festival’s artistic director, seeking to offer audiences a selection of all dance genres: contemporary, flamenco, Spanish regional, classical ballet, dance theatre and more. It is a prismatic, open and cosmopolitan festival with a programme combining orthodox classical and academic ballet with today’s most advanced forms of contemporary dance, melding the avant-garde with tradition while promoting movement arts of all types and styles.
